First of all, let me say I've been in this hobby off-and-on since the late 50's, (started with CL), so I have some opinions. They may seem pessimistic, (my wife will heartily concur that I am!), but...

Gas/oil compromise?

Hi,
I have two engines: Fuji 32ei and a DLE 35 RA. The Fuji calls for 40:1 and the DLE is 30:1. I haven't yet run the DLE, so it still needs breaking in. The manual says nothing about altering the...

RE: Pull/pull and CF pushrod questions

Let me start by saying I've put together, (as well as many,many kits and a scratch build), ARFs from GP, Goldberg, and H9. So far, this one falls short...

RE: RC Guys Super Decathlon coming

Hi all;
After reading my manual and considering my DLE 35RA will weigh less than 3 lbs, that mounting a single elevator servo up forward, (as opposed to two, outside on the fuse rear), may be a...
